Departing from Ajaccio, your skipper offers you the chance to sail towards the north to Calvi or to sail along the coastline towards the south, to Bonifacio. The route can be chosen according to your preferences as long as all passengers are in agreement.
If you sail towards the north, you'll discover Cargèse first. You'll probably make a stop in its picturesque fishing harbour. This historical town has been influenced by a Greek colony which settled there in the seventeenth century. Wander around the narrow streets and soak up the Mediterranean atmosphere, you'll be seduced!
Further north up the coast, you'll discover the Genoese tower of Capo Rosso with the Séninu headland and the Scandola Nature Reserve in the background: an impactful panoramic view!
Later you'll have the chance to sail around the Calanques de Piana. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, these rocky inlets are incomparably beautiful and offer you unique scenery. Then you can relax on the beach of Ficajola. To get a glimpse of this beach's beauty, click here!
During your cruise, you'll discover Galéria and the amazing bay of Crovani.
At the end of the trip, you'll reach Calvi, a distinctive town in the region of La Balagne. This citadel, standing over the water, is said to be the birthplace of Christopher Columbus.
Then you'll head back to Ajaccio, sailing along the coastline in the opposite direction. Take advantage of the feeling of well-being offered by the sea!
If you've chosen to head south from Ajaccio, you'll sail along a coastline which is well-known for its beauty. You'll appreciate isolated sandy coves and admire the piles of fallen rocks which sculpt the cliffs into true, natural works of art.
You'll also pass the Senetosa headland. This headland is host to several small, isolated beaches and typically Corsican, charming coves. Cala di Conca, Agulia, Tivella and Cala Longa... there are so many authentic places which hold beautiful surprises for you.
During your cruise, you'll make stops to discover typical villages. Porto Pollo will charm you with its authenticity. Previously a simple haven for fishermen, this village now has a proper marina which gives you a remarkable view over the Valinco Gulf.
Relax in the sun on the magnificent Cupabia beach! Tizzano is amongst the villages that you must see. This adorable, tiny village can truly be called a hidden paradise. Its small marina alongside its coves and beaches with crystal clear water will seduce you. It is the ideal place to take advantage of the sea and the sun in a haven of tranquillity.
Skippair recommends that you try out its fish restaurants!
Along the Corsican coastline, you can embark on wonderful trips to discover the treasures which make Corsica such an exceptional destination. The Domaine de Murtoli, the Lion of Roccapina, or the Bay of Arbitru...
You'll sail until you reach the picturesque Corsican town of Bonifacio. This characterful town will impress you with its 120km of beautiful coastline and its houses, nestled only 60m above the sea. You'll be overwhelmed by the scale of its fortresses and the dozens of historical monuments.
At midweek, you'll sail along the coastline in the opposite direction in order to disembark in Ajaccio at the end of the week. Then it'll be time for your unforgettable journey on this exceptional catamaran to come to an end!

From the drop of water to the enormous ocean, water in all its forms transports me. From a murmur of speech to the hurricane, the wind in all its strength inebriates me. From a tear to laughter, Man in all his emotions enriches me. Set all the sails, open your eyes, open your hearts and open up to happiness, the happiness of scenic splendour, the happiness to swim, the happiness to glance, the happiness to smile. Happiness of a digression in two stages and three movements. The time of a cruise and the time of each moment. The movement of water, wind and this unique nature.
